Dental crowns, sometimes called dental caps, are a type of dental restoration that fully covers a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are typically made of porcelain, ceramic, or metal. They are used to prevent a weak tooth from breaking or holding parts of the cracked tooth together, restore the tooth after it has been broken or worn down, cover a dental implant or discolored or misshapen tooth, or a tooth that has had a root canal.
A dentist typically provides a dental crown in two or three appointments. The first appointment involves preparing the tooth by removing any decay and shaping it to make room for the crown. The dentist then takes an impression (mold) of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth, which is sent to a dental laboratory where the crown is custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth. The patient leaves the office with a temporary crown.
At the second appointment, the dentist removes the temporary crown and checks the fit and bite of the permanent crown. If everything is satisfactory, the permanent crown is put into place.
The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia, with minimal recovery time. Most patients can return to work the day after the procedure. Some patients require a second day of recovery, but usually 24 hours is enough for the patient to continue with their daily activities.
